No reasonable person could contradict this, but the fact remains that reasonable limits exist.

If only the leftists would stop trying to convince us individualists that we are merely some cog in the machine of society, that we should have no mind or volition of our own, and that it takes a village to raise an idiot, then we might actually be able to live free. Then again, freedom is not the goal of the left.
